I had a very disturbing conversation the other evening with a extremely harsh individual. This person was completely against the Trans community using public gender orientated toilets and I am in total disagreement with her evaluation of this community. Her words were strong, abusive and lacked education on this issue, I am curious about how common her view is and if there is more we can do too change this negative view, as well as the unproven fallacies that surround this subject. They are human beings as we all are and we should show our support :)

Tamara Whilhite, we cannot place trans people into a sexual predator category - I agree with Aime and it seems that you have placed all rapists into a trans category. Many trans people have been the victim of a sexual predator themselves.
Until the mentally ill boy or rapist posing as one is in the girls' dorm, shower, women's shelter. The bathroom issue is what they present it as, when it is actually destroying gender segregation that exists for women's privacy and safety.
Do you really believe that boys are going to live their lives as girls just to get into showers? Trans youth are severely bullied, that boy would have to suffer through a lot just to get into a public area where chances of doing anything are slim
Tamara, if we are vigilant about watching our children and guarding them against any predator and not specifically trans people ( could be anyone), it would not be an issue and they would be safe. I never leave my children alone in a public toilet.
You know that there are women who transition to men who are fighting for the same thing, right? This isn't just about "crazy men" dictating women. Not to mention plenty of women support the movement themselves.
Most transgenders are biological men, as I said above. That some women support transgenderism is irrelevant to its morality or negative impact on many women. There are women supporting Muslim migration regardless of the 500% increase in rapes, too.
Morality as deemed by YOU, of course. My point is that most people pushing for the rights of trans people are not mentally ill perverts as your last sentence suggests.

Gender orientated toilets were not established for the safety of women, they were established because of colonial perspectives towards segregation.
